This study focuses on the regional effects of new domestic and foreign policies initiated by Russia’s president and the challenging policy dilemmas faced by regional governors since 2012. It analyzes gubernatorial elections held during 2012–2015 to show the increased control over the electoral process and the regional cadre exercised by the Kremlin. It explores the implications of new identity politics and foreign policies advanced from Moscow on regional elites’ place in Russia’s system of power, their governance strategies and political economies. It reviews regional adjustment strategies undertaken in response to Russia’s rising economic problems.
